Well, how about his socks? (@Soccerissue)

Pepe will not be punished by the RFEF after stepping on Lionel Messi's hand during the first leg of Real Madrid and Barcelona's Copa del Rey quarterfinal last week. The fans at the Santiago Bernabeu for Real's 4-1 win over Athletic Bilbao on Sunday were not as forgiving, though.

A father a son sitting in the front row (who appeared to be fans of the home side) put up a banner in front of them that read "Pepe, my son does NOT want your shirt." Just in case Pepe was wondering.

It's unclear whether Pepe saw the banner, but if he did, he would have been sure to politely offer a kick in the back or a stomp on the child's hand instead of his shirt. He's an accommodating guy.
